Iconic Durban rap, rock, reggae and hip-hop act Fruits & Veggies have been chosen to perform at this year's Oppikoppi festival.
But in typical Stone City style, they do not have the money to make the trip. Hence the concert this weekend at which patriotic Durbanites are required to part with some crown and have a party in the name of a great cause. Fruits & Veggies have been going strong for more than four years and have evolved from a woozy cloud of bong smoke into a formidable funk machine. Oppikoppi would be poorer without them, so help to send them on their merry way. The support act is Brandon Lee Hunt, no slouch in the skanking department himself.
